The French director Audrey Diwan, 41, received this Saturday the Golden Lion in Venice for “The Event”, a raw, intimate and feminist film about a young woman who aborts clandestinely. The film, adapted from the eponymous autobiographical story by novelist Annie Ernaux, takes place in France in the 1960s, before abortion was legalized. It shows the journey of a young student who becomes pregnant, played by the Franco-Romanian Anamaria Vartolomei.
The Spanish star Penélope Cruz won the award for best female interpretation for her role in “Madres Paralelas”, her new collaboration with her compatriot Pedro Almodovar.
